Stephen Rotella Acquires Intermedium Financial

StoneCastle, an insured deposit technology provider, has recently announced that they acquired Intermedium Financial, a company that previously dealt in insured deposits as well. The move shouldn’t come as a surprise to many, as one of Stephen Rotella’s goals for the company was to expand its reach beyond its current markets. As of the beginning of 2017 so far, it looks as though Rotella is on track to achieve his company’s targets.

 

As the CEO of StoneCastle, Stephen Rotella has made quite the name for himself over the past several years. Since its inception, StoneCastle has evolved to become one of the leaders in its market, and its expansionary efforts seem to only serve to cement this position even further. Although it’s unclear what StoneCastle’s next plans are for further expansion, what is known is that StoneCastle is in an excellent position to pursue any strategy they wish.

 

From Stephen Rotella’s point of view, much of StoneCastle’s strength stems from their willingness to think outside of the box and act as a “disruptive force” in the industry. While other insured deposit technology providers are content to let the business essentially run itself, StoneCastle’s leadership is eager to look for new ways to expand their impact on the market.

 

As a part of the purchase of Intermedium Financial and its associated assets, StoneCastle is now in control of the InterLINK platform. This means that StoneCastle is now in an even better position to provide its famed services to consumers, including financial intermediaries and other clients who are in need of secure deposit technologies.

 

In fact, as of this writing, StoneCastle currently has one of the largest networks of banking platforms in the country. There is no doubt that a large part of the company’s success is likely due to the efforts of Stephen Rotella, who has been at the helm of the company since 2011 as both its president and CEO. For their part, Intermedium Financial is excited at the prospect of working with both StoneCastle and its leadership, including Stephen Rostella. Although the future can never be fully predicted, StoneCastle’s excellent track record seems to indicate that 2017 will be yet another strong year for the company, especially after the acquisition of several highly sought after technologies. As long as they continue to build on their positive reputation, it is not unreasonable to assume that they will continue to expand their lead in the market and maintain their position at the forefront of the industry.

 

Chris Burch Talks About The Interdependence In The Technology And Fashion Industries

Technology and fashion industries have evolved. Notably, trends experienced in one season become outdated in the next period. Both industries strive to improve on already existing products to make them functional and acceptable. Despite the changes experienced in these industries, one constant factor has been the distinct correlation between the two industries. Innovations in technology have greatly influenced the fashion trends and vice versa. Chris Burch, a serial entrepreneur, looks at the tech and fashion trends in the past, present and future.

Presently, most people are using iPods to listen to music because they are portable and fashionable. This technology has evolved from big boom boxes in the 70s to the Walkman in the 90s, which were considered trendy during their respective eras. The intermarriage between technology and fashion has continued to grow stronger. Presently, fashion designers are incorporating technology in their products to create dresses and shoes that can generate power when an individual is walking. Google glasses gained popularity when fashion models were seen wearing them on the runway. Looking into the future, innovations like airbags for cyclists will be considered more fashionable than helmets, while Frontline gloves will be widely used by fire fighters for hand gesture communication at the scene of fire. The future of both industries is intertwined in the success of each other.
